ADDENDUM: River Safety Info & River Beaches
• Roughly May 1-October 31, the River is gentle, with very little white water, and warm enough to swim. Water levels vary greatly, depending on rainfall and the summer dams.
• Roughly Nov 1-Apr 30, the River is very swift, deep, and muddy, not safe for swimming or boating. Depending on rainfall, beaches are more or less under water.
• River levels depend upon a complex integration of upstream dams at Lake Mendocino and Lake Sonoma, summer dams at Healdsburg and Guerneville, and tidal influences, especially Monte Rio and west, along with Country water flow decisions and drought conditions. Many beaches are under water until late spring/early summer. Homes with beach access will generally have a longer season for river access. We cannot guarantee river levels, river access or frontage conditions at any time of year.
• Boating conditions are generally safe May 1-Oct 31.
• Homes may offer boats when it's generally safe for boating.
• Homes with boats should have two adult and two child life vests. Additional vests can be purchased at King's Sport & Tackle in Guerneville. Many homes with boats have seasonal docks (see below).
• Docks are generally in place from mid-June/early July to mid-September, depending on when the summer dams are installed. The summer dams raise the water level to where docks can be used. We don’t have control over or advance notice of this process. Each home has a custom dock system which requires the water level to be within a certain range, so not all docks go in at the same time.
22. Tenant acknowledges that he/she has read the above agreement and agrees to fully comply with all rules and regulations. Tenant understands that these documents titled "Vacation Rental agreement & information sheet" is a contract that becomes binding upon Owner's receipt of tenants' check or credit card or airbnb reservation.
